East Wind gently blows in another contest entry from Miryam Meier

Renewal

As our contest come to an end, here is an endorsement for hope for those among us who feel that hope has passed its shelf life.

Literati!

Just three more stories to post, and we can announce five finalists. Several of you who never dabbled in poetry felt then topic of Lost Love required you to emigrate from your own comfort zone and cast your fate to the wind:  In Miryam Meier’s case: the East Wind.

East Wind

by M. L. Meier

Droplets of rain bath my heart

Exposing wounds

Healing starts

Honey dripping from my lips

Darkness fades

Life eclipse!

 

Turning slowly to the east

Singing praises

Joy increased

Soaking Presence in my soul

Beauty erupts

I am whole!

 

Barren desert now in bloom

Dancing colors

Lovers tune

Grasping tightly to the sight

Dulcet array

Come twilight!

 

Roots grow deep within the earth

Preserving life

Impending birth

Heaven sends another rain

Buds appear

Life again!

    You have a way with words, and I admire that you were able to rhyme. I’ve never been able to do that! You may find freedom in free verse!

    You stepped out of your safety zone magnificently. Guess both of us had better look into this realm a bit more. Lovely Miryam – just lovely.
